Dear Readers,

I want to apologize to all of you. Snippet & Ink has been experiencing what feels like an inordinate number of technical issues over the last few weeks, and I hate thinking about how annoying it must be for you to try and access posts when things aren’t working properly. This past week we made the move to a new server, with the thought that it will solve some of the access issues you might have experienced a few weeks ago, but the process of moving over has brought along its own set of challenges.

After losing several posts, being unable to upload images, getting totally blitzed by spam comments, and finally new posts not showing up at all… I kind of hit a wall (read: had a minor meltdown) and decided that the best thing would be to take a step back and breathe. My hope is that the folks who provide Snippet & Ink with web support will be able to resolve these issues quickly, and that we’ll be back to regular posting as soon as possible – I have so many beautiful weddings and other pretties that I can’t wait to share with you! But until then, I hope you’ll forgive a little bit of radio silence while we regroup, and that you’ll pay us a visit us on Pinterest, FacebookTwitter, or Instagram.

Thanks for always being such thoughtful and understanding readers, and for bearing with us as we go through some growing pains. Hopefully we’ll have things sorted out (and better than ever!) really soon.

xoxo
Kathryn
